It sounds like you have a faulty pressure switch. It is located in the top control panel. Sometimes, you can tap them and they will work (until they stick again.)

Kenmore elite washer model 21082000, won't


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Cold water intake will not allow water to pass, does it have a flood safe cut off somewhere? How do I re set it?


Turn the water off going to the unit and turn the unit on with the water still off, then as the machine "starts " turn the water on very slowly, if you have no shutoff at the machine you will have to shut a main off. Just remember to turn on the water very slowly so it wont trip auto shutoff if it has it.

Washer will overfill on small load and large


If this happens only on small load cycle , then it can be a faulty timer board.

however check also the water level switch, when there is overfilling this part is always the first suspect.

FL ERROR MESSAGE


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, "FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lock condition in order for "FL" to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore Elite Calypso


FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. This could just be a fluke, or you could have a possible bad pressure switch that is not shutting off the water supply correctly. In addition, fill valves have been known to short out causing water to constantly fill in the wash tub. Lastly, your household water pressure could be too low and won't shut the fill valves off properly. Inlet water pressure should be a minimum of 10-20 psi. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. I hope some of this leads you in the right direction.
